New graduated licensing system
Too many young Tasmanians are being killed or seriously injured on our roads. The Tasmanian Government is committed to saving young lives.
That’s why we have improved Tasmania’s Graduated Licensing System. Drivers are most at risk when they first get their Ps and start driving solo. The new system will help reduce the risk.
Young drivers will now have more on-road driving experience and skills to keep them and their passengers safe.
Most importantly, these improvements will help reduce crashes involving new drivers and save lives.
For more information on the new graduated licensing system visit the Plates Plus website.
A national best practice model was developed in 2014. All states and territories support the National Road Safety Strategy 2011-2020 and agreed to make changes to their graduated licensing systems to align with the best practice model, and to improve access to licensing.
Tasmania now meets the “enhanced” model at the forefront of safe practices for young drivers along with Victoria and New South Wales.
Most importantly, the improved GLS will help reduce crashes involving young drivers and save lives.
